When I stepped away from this page, I thought not much would change besides the time I spent scrolling. ๐Ÿ“ฑ I was getting lost in a sea of other instagrammers who were posting the same things as me, so what was the point?๐Ÿค” In the past three days, Iโ€™ve realized what Iโ€™ve been missing. It was believing in myself about what I held true. I could absorb health, wellness, fitness, mindset, etc. all day long. And for the most part, I was living it, too. But there was a piece of me that rebelled against those things and at times I would think โ€œwhatโ€™s the point?โ€๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ That thought led to me being in a constant battle with myself. I had lost my own trust & I didnโ€™t believe in me. I was reading other insta-posts that were meant to be motivational and I would be like โ€œYASSSS๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿฆ„๐ŸŒˆโ€ …but then turn around five seconds later and didnโ€™t feel like it pertained to me anymore. So I questioned how they all could do it day in and day out? How do others post and believe what theyโ€™re saying all the time? How do other people live their truths? It struck me that for me, sharing it is the key ๐Ÿ”‘ Writing what I believe, sharing what I do, connecting with others on their own journeys to find their truths. Just that little bit of accountability to be real with others was what I had been missing. Being able to process it by writing the words and trying to make it all make sense for someone else. Thatโ€™s how I make it make sense for me. That is how I believe. โœจ



So, long story short: Iโ€™m back to rambling on instagram ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿคฃ and I once again realized that Iโ€™m doing this for me. To process my thoughts and reactions. To believe in myself.โœจ And hopefully, help anyone else following to find a way to believe in themselves, too. ๐Ÿค— .



And maybe it seems silly that I need to do this to believe in myself. I *should* just have the faith and do the thing. But maybe we need to stop โ€œshould-ingโ€ ourselves. Iโ€™d rather just set myself up for my own success in the way I know how. And this is it, so here I am ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
